See Me in Your Shoes

simply suffer in silence 

as solitude seeks me out 

my mind is full of violence 

but against these thoughts i shout 

falling deep in day dreams 

i find the pain there doesn't count 

your fine, 

but you haven't seen the scars 

they're just beneath the skin, 

maybe if i dig deep enough you'll see them 

but you never do 

you never see the clues 

so i try to stand in your shoes 

don't worry, even i don't see me in your shoes 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My country
